    Fans of the TV show WKRP in Cincinnati (1978-1982) will be happy to find out that a new DVD collection is being released that includes all of the original songs used on series. Often, due to licensing rights, when TV shows go into syndication and home release (VHS, DVD, etc.) the original music is replaced with either 'sound alike' performances or changed entirely.

    A good example is another show from that era, Bosom Buddies. When originally aired the theme song was Billy Joel's "My Life" which was then replaced entirely in syndication and on DVD with an expanded version of the shows end theme song which was original to the show.

    Personally I'll always remember the WKRP episode with the Thanksgiving turkey drop. The horror! "As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!" :LOL:

    It was a great show I thought. Funny as can be and a radio station to boot.
    And the Music was an essential part of it also.
